Nation braces to bear the brunt of the nationwide strike
As the entire nation braces to bear the brunt of the nationwide 'Bharat Bandh', 2nd September 2015 may witness what the trade unions have called 'the biggest strike in the country ever'.
Turning a deaf year to the central government's appeal to call off the strike, ten central trade unions have decided to go ahead with 'Bharat Bandh' on September 2, protesting against the reforms in labour laws proposed by the government, which they have described as anti-worker economic policy.
